In this paper the chromosomal localization of the human skeletal muscle genes Troponin-I slow-twitch (TNNI1), Troponin-I fast-twitch (TNNI2), and Troponin-C fast (TNNC2) and the refinement of the position for alpha-Tropomyosin (TPM1) and beta-Tropomyosin (TPM2) are reported. By radiation hybrid mapping, TPM1 was assigned to chromosome 15q22.1, TPM2 to chromosome 9p13.2-p13.1, TNNI1 to chromosome 1q31.3, TNNI2 to chromosome 11p15.5, and TNNC2 to chromosome 20q12-q13.11. The genomic distribution of these genes is discussed, with particular emphasis on the cluster organization of the Troponin genes.
